Track Name: The Peter Principle
This worlds gone cold. As they all march on
Every day it’s the same routine
Where does it end? Not over horizons
We need to be the generation of change

We have to stand up together
We’ve got to stop this machine
We have to stand up together
We’ve got to stop this machine

We’ll rise up, we’ll rise, we’ll rise up and come together

How do we stop it all? Inspire passion to live your dreams.
It starts with one and it spreads to all like a fucking disease

We have to stand up together
We’ve got to stop this machine
Track Name: Jumper
ENVY ME
ENVY ME

What happened to my kingdom?
When did this scene spring into disaster?

This is the fuckin drought.
Track Name: Plurals
Lost in the dark searching for a sign of life
To give me some hope that one day I’ll get it right

I’ve given up everything I had for this
I’ve come too far to just give up and quit
You think I should back down and give in
I can’t give up the dream and be like them

Don’t look over the edge
don’t look over the edge
Its called a leap of faith for a reason
If I truly believe then nothing stands in my way

Lost in the dark searching for a sign of life
To give me some hope that one day I’ll get it right

Stand your ground
Stand your ground
Stand your ground
Stand your ground

Lost in the dark searching for a sign of life
To give me some hope that one day I will get this right

Down on my hands and my knees while the weight of the world keeps pushing leaving me
Breathless
Breathless
Breathless
Breathless

But I will never stop never sleep until what I have started is finally complete.
Forever
Forever
Forever
Forever
Track Name: In The Direction Of Sharks
My body is broken
These words yet unspoken
I don’t know how much I can take
My break point is near
I’m screaming in fear
I can barely hold my head in its place

I know I am stronger
But for how much longer
I can’t keep carrying this weight
My back is breaking
My arms are shaking
I’m trapped beneath my fate

I need to get relief. can you please carry me
I don’t think I can make it home alive
Have I failed us now? Can we get away somehow?
I just cant do this on my own

How much abuse can my body take?
How much can I withstand before I break?
How much abuse can my body take?
How much can I withstand before I break?

The time has run out my world is closing in on me
There is no hope left don’t bother saving me
The time has run out my world is closing in on me
There is no hope left don’t bother saving me

Take what’s left. take all I have.
Take what’s left. Take my life.
Track Name: The Last Man
This is our life this is our love
Nothing will come between us

Don't give up your hopes of making it out tonight
And wanting something more

It's the material things it's the material

These things we don't need them
We'll make it on our own
These things we don't need them we'll make it on our own tonight

Pull the trigger or stand aside do what you love or let your dreams fuckin die

This is our life this is our love
Nothing will come between us

This us our life
This is our love
Track Name: Brazen Bull
These days they don’t end
At night I cant fall asleep
This shadow over head
Is trying to swallow me

Hey life help me out
I’m trying to save
The best part of me
But its falling away

I’m screaming out
Someone please come and stay
Cause I cant spend another night alone
Face down in bed
Replaying it in my head
What could I have done to change the outcome of this

I’ve been trying for days
I can’t hold back my fears
No one wants to live their life alone
And I’m dying to let you know
I will be waiting for you to come home

Soon I’ll make you see,
I can be a stronger man
Help me make me better
For you, for me

Honestly, honestly

I’ll suffer the consequence
I may never love again
I’ll regret this forever
You’ll always be a part of me

I’ll suffer the consequence
I’ll never see your face again Oh!
Track Name: Black Sheep
My life spent behind walls, scared to live for the longest time
Its so hard to hide this sadness I keep from showing on my face
These sins my cross to bare. The weight of my regrets
These choices I have made are marked by these scars that will never fade

It’s getting hard to fight the demons
What if somebody dies?
Swallow pills and push you aside
Can I reverse my lies?

How can I set things straight
How can I make this right
Is there a chance for forgiveness
will this curse me for the rest of my fucking life

When will it stop in a world that’s fucked up
It’s made this place a living hell
if we see through this storm even though its just begun
Can we ever fix the damage that I’ve done

The damage is done, the damage is done, the damage is done

These faces will haunt me forever
This blood will haunt me forever
Track Name: Elephant Parade
Your reliving your memories
Mixed of dreams and reality
You want to know where you really are
But this monster won’t let you see

Know when the reaper comes your life was not a waste of time
The golden years you loved so dear were not a waste of life

You’ve taught me so much
I owe you everything
you’ve given me so much
Its time to set you free

The only one who had all the answers
Is lying on the brink of the end
I feel like a fuckin disaster
And my heart is caving in

This is tearing me apart
On the inside

Were running out of time
I know this is not the end
I know that we will meet again

Find it
In me to be
Stronger
To stand on my own
Grow up, to live up to the standards you hold

You will live on forever inside of me
You will live on forever inside of me
Track Name: There's No Help For Girls Like You
I’d rather hate the truth
Then love a beautiful lie
Of all the things you said to me
I never saw this one coming

Where were you when I needed time to breathe
Where were you when I needed everything
I’ve crossed the earth
To realize I needed home again

Do you thing that its impressing
When your killing me with your lies tonight
Do you think that its impressing
when your fucking him with your eyes tonight

Where were you when I needed everything
Where were you when I needed everything

This is
This is
This is the end of the line
This is the end of the line
This is the end of your line
Track Name: Single Serving Friend
Its been a long time coming and all I’ve been thinking about is how
I’ll take you down a peg

Don’t say a word
Save your breath. save your wits
For those who you party with
You can’t win this debate I’m the stronger one

So I’m calling you out
Tonight were gonna throw down
I don’t think you understand
That I’m the better man

Through bloody knuckles, and broken bones
Tonight you’re leaving in a bag
You’re going down, you’re going down

Come on and bring it
Come on and bring this shit

This is where I say goodbye
This is where you say goodnight

This is the end, this is the end

This is the end, say goodnight my friend
This is the end, ill never see you again
Track Name: Lights To Lights
We have to stand up together
We’ve got to stop this machine
